    A Design Research Lab—An Integrated Model to Identify Conscious and Unconscious Behavior in the Design Process2016Inngår i: Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing: Design for Inclusion, Springer International Publishing Switzerland , 2016, Vol. 500, s. 553-563Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    To understand how different design solutions affect users, designers traditionally use different evaluation methods that mainly rely on conscious feedback from the users. However, the complexity of human behaviour, where a large part is unconscious, point to a need for an extended tool box addressing the part not accessible to human conscious knowledge. Here, we describe a design research lab where traditional methods are complemented with tools to measure physiological signals influenced by emotional and sympathetic responses. These tools include galvanic skin response (GSR), electrocardiograph (ECG), and electroencephalograph (EEG). Typical sessions with acquired data of conscious and unconscious user reactions are described. The large body of data collected, which also require non-design expertise for interpretation, suggest that a further development towards simplified output data of the unconscious reactions is needed to allow wider use within industrial design work.

    Bevarande av webbplatser: En kartläggning bland statliga myndigheter i Sverige2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis was to investigate if Swedish agencies preserve their websites according to the Swedish archival legislations and guidelines. As a theory the OAIS Reference Model (Open Archival Information System, developed by US Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems, CCSDS) has been used as a model to show how important it is to develop strategies for public digital information which has to be preserved for long term. The ingest function in the OAIS Reference Model demands that files are prepared for long term preservation and requires that the digital information fulfils established technical requirements.

    In the study the Swedish National Archive and their advices about preserving websites to archivists on the Swedish agencies are being studied. To control if the agencies meet the requirements for their management and preservation of their websites a survey was sent out to investigate if Swedish agencies preserve their websites.

     

    According to the survey result, 84 of 113 agencies preserve their websites in some way. If the technical requirements really was met could not be verified in this thesis, the results was relied on the responses from the authorities. The study showed that agencies requested clearer rules in the field of preservation of websites, but also that some agencies wasn’t aware of the regulations and the significance in this issue.

     

    The conclusion of the study is that the agencies might need to update themselves on important legislation and guidance in this area. The study also shows that the National Archive must be clearer with their information on long term storage of government agencies websites.

    Musikutbildningen och examination vid Kungl. Musikaliska Akademien under "Pehr Frigel-epoken", 1796-18421994Licentiatavhandling, monografi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In this lecentiate disseratation music education and examination at the Royal Academy of Music (KMA) during the period 1796-1842, hear called the Frigel era, is described. The theory of culture provides a general perspective for the disign of the dissertation and the illustration of the issues. A model of analysis, which is a method of investigation rather than a finished model, forms a point ot departure in my attempt to demonstrate that education and examination had a double effect in society. It meant a cultural pluralism rather than a secularization.

    Education during the Frigel era starts with an Elementary Singing School, but after 1815 its professional aim becomes gradually more obvious. Subjects during the period in question are the theory of music, singing, piano and organ. The examination for a post at school, at sixth form college or senior high school and in church is extensive. During a twenty-year period 80 music teachers, 90 precentors and 600 organists are examined.

    Important issues discussed in this essay concern education content, education quality and examination demands related to school and church activities and also to the improtance of education in the development of society.

    Abstract [en]

     

    The war poetry of Erik Axel Karlfeldt (1864-1931) is a neglected part of the poet's work. The aim of this article is to discuss three poems from Flora och Bellona (1918): "Det röda korset" ("The Red Cross"), "Svart Jul" ("Black Christmas") and "En pesthymn" ("A Hymn of Pestilence"). Attention is paid to the ideological level of the poems, but also to their poetic structure. The poems are related to Peter Hallberg's discussion of Karlfeldt's archaistic imagery, to Esaias Tegnér's "Svea", but also to the contemporary political poetry of outspoken nationalists and socialists. Compared to the explicit political poetry, Karlfeldt's poetry is complex, often ambivalent in its criticism of both belligerents and alternately displaying despair and optimism. "En pesthymn" can be seen as a turning point, mirroring the outbreak in 1918 of the Finnish Civil War. In this poem, the ambivalent moral judgements of the poet's preceding war poetry are replaced by unequivocal political support for the "Whites".

    Labyrinternet: Vilken plats tar internet i ditt liv?2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Internetifieringen i vårt samhälle går rasande fort och vi blir mer och mer uppkopplade.Detta projekt handlar om att upplysa betraktaren om mötet med internet och skapa enpersonlig relation till det fenomen som internet är. Genom ett synliggörande med aktiv interaktionligger projektet i gränslandet mellan kritisk design, interaction design och industridesign med fokuspå 'Design För Alla' frågor för alla.’Design För Alla’ är en innovationsmetod som innebär att frågeställningar ställs på sin spets ochatt man utgår från och testar sina idéer tillsammans med dem som ställer högst krav och harstörst behov. ’Design För Alla’ gör att man kan ifrågasätta gammal praxis och existeradereferensramar för standardlösningar och istället angripa en frågeställning utifrån nyaassociationsbanor och inspirationsingångar som gör researchen mer tillåtande och spännande.Ett av projektets viktigaste moment var en workshop med en grupp kognitivt nedsatta ungdomarfrån Höghammarskolan. Att blanda in personer med kognitiv funktionsnedsättning lägger fokuspå andra frågor än en “normalstörd” studiegrupp skulle ha gjort. Dessa ungdomar lever under en”disorienterad norm” där de med sin funktionsnedsättning lärt sig hitta vägar runt sinaproblem och ofta går problemlösning till mötes mer ”rakt på” och intuitivt. ’Design För Alla’ har berikatmin process genom att jag försökt anamma deras ”hands on” och lekfulla sätt för att förberedamig för workshopens laborativa moment kring färg, ljud, form, material, rörelse ochsemiotiska funktioner kring framför allt på och avstängning. Det har gjort att jag sökt efter merintuitiva och basala kroppsliga uttryck för interaktion och kommunikation med mitt internetkoncept.För hur lever och upplever vi något som är osynligt? Resultatet är Labyrinternet; ett homage tillinternet i form av en el&internet-station som också agerar plattform för debatten kring frågan”Vilken plats tar internet i vår vardag och i våra liv?”

    At the end of the day… An ELF perspective on lexical chunks in spoken business English.2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Since Sinclair (1991) identified “the idiom principle”, lexical chunks, i.e. frequently occurring clusters of words, have been recognized as an important part of language learning. This importance has been highlighted as advances in computer software have made it easier to identify patterns in language use, and most published English teaching materials are now informed by the analysis of large corpora of native speaker language. However, given that the most widespread use of English language throughout the world takes the form of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF), i.e. English used as a common means of communication among speakers from different first-language backgrounds, there is a strong argument for examining the lexical chunks used in this context when considering students’ needs.

     

    This study uses VOICE (the Vienna-Oxford International Corpus of English), a corpus of spoken ELF interactions, to examine the occurrence of language chunks in ELF in the professional domain. A subcorpus of VOICE comprising of occurring in the professional domain (business, organizational and research contexts) was created, representing approximately 830,000 tokens of transcribed oral text. Recurring lexical chunks were identified using Wordsmith Tools (Scott 2012), and categorized according to type and function. The types of lexical chunk occurring most frequently proved to be vague expressions, e.g. “and so on” and discourse markers such as “at the end of the day”. The pedagogical implications of these findings are considered, concerning whether and how published materials might be supplemented to better meet the needs of those students who expect to use English in an ELF context.

    From Do You Know to I Don’t Know: An Analysis of the Frequency and Usefulness of Lexical Bundles in Five English Language Self-Study Books2017Inngår i: Corpus Pragmatics, ISSN 2509-9507, Vol. 1, nr 4, s. 351-372Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowing which phrases to use in everyday situations is a key part of communicating effectively in English, and increasingly language learning materials are expected to reflect this. This paper presents a corpus analysis of five contemporary self-study books for English language learners, to identify common phrases taught, assess their form and function, and evaluate them against a baseline of lexical bundles (i.e. recurring sequences of words) used in social situations by users of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF). Self-study textbooks aim to equip the learner with enough English to function appropriately in a range of different contexts; they usually present language in the form of dialogues in common everyday situations, often supplemented with exercises, grammar explanations and glossaries. While they may differ in pedagogical approach, it could be anticipated that the lexical bundles found would be broadly similar. However, analysis of this corpus showed a lack of consistency both in the form and number of bundles found in the different publications. Furthermore, comparison with a corpus of ELF conversations extracted from the Vienna-Oxford International Corpus of English (VOICE, version 2.0 XML) (2013) highlighted the underrepresentation of lexical bundles with certain pragmatic functions, such as hedges/stance expressions (I don’t know, I think) and vague language (a little bit).

    Lexical bundles from one century to the next: An analysis of language input in English teaching texts2018Inngår i: Journal of Historical Pragmatics, ISSN 1566-5852, E-ISSN 1569-9854, Vol. 19, nr 2, s. 167-185Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This corpus study compares lexical bundles found in the language input of a selection of historical and current English language teaching materials to see what insights they can give into changes in spoken language use. English teaching texts published between 1905 and 1917 were used to construct a historical corpus, and a collection of English language self-study texts published between 2004 and 2014 were used for comparison. Both groups of texts focused on spoken language. The most frequent three-word lexical bundles extracted from each corpus varied considerably. The contemporary texts showed both a greater use of formulaic language and more syntactic complexity within it, while the historical texts relied on simpler structures. An exploratory analysis of the lexical bundles in the historical texts suggests, however, that viewed in conjunction with other historical sources, they can assist in building a picture of spoken language use of the period.

    Lexical Bundles in ELF Business Meetings2016Inngår i: The Linguistics Journal, ISSN 1718-2301, Vol. 10, nr 1, s. 141-163Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    It is widely accepted that lexical bundles can provide useful insights into the characteristics of different types of discourse. However, studies have tended to focus on native speaker or language learner use, and English as a Lingua Franca (ELF), English used as a common means of communication among speakers from different first-language backgrounds, has received limited attention in this respect. Given that ELF is widely used in a business context, the research reported in this paper is an initial attempt to characterize ELF used in one business community of practice by identifying the frequency and function of lexical bundles in a small corpus of ELF business meetings. It draws on a subcorpus of business meeting transcripts from the Vienna-Oxford Corpus of English (VOICE) to identify the most frequent two-, three- and four-word bundles used, and compares these to lexical bundles used in ELF in other domains and in ENL business meetings (Handford, 2010). Results showed similar levels of use of frequent bundles in ELF business meetings to the comparative data, and a high degree of overlap. Many of the bundles used in ELF business meetings were the same as those used in general contexts, suggesting that there are there are stable core features in spoken ELF, although key bundles indicated certain differences. Furthermore, a number of the ELF business bundles corresponded to frequent ENL bundles. Many of the bundles used in ELF business meetings were associated with developing relationships, such as providing verbal feedback (yeah yeah yeah, mhm mhm mhm) hedging (I don’t know, I think that), and making interpersonal references (you know, you can see), and vague expressions (more or less, and so on) were also common. Idiomatic expressions tended to be avoided, with the exception of at the end of (the day) which had a high frequency in ELF, as in ENL business meetings.

    Lexical bundles in graded readers: To what extent does language restriction affect lexical patterning?2016Inngår i: System An International Journal of Educational Technology and Applied Linguistics, ISSN 0346-251X, Vol. 59, s. 61-72Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how far the lexical bundles that occur in graded readers are influenced by simplified language, comparing them quantitatively and qualitatively with those occurring in a corpus of authentic prose fiction. Phrasal language found in the graded readers is also evaluated using Martinez and Schmitt’s (2012) PHRASE list. The results are largely encouraging, showing that lexical bundles occur with greater density in graded readers than authentic fiction, that they largely reflect authentic language use, and that most of the phrases deemed to be important and useful are represented. However, differences between B1 and B2 level readers indicate that a higher degree of simplification affects both the range and grammatical type of lexical bundles. Non-transparent lexical bundles, despite being composed of very frequent words, were under-represented in the readers, particularly at B1 level. It is concluded that while graded readers are a valuable source of exposure to lexical bundles, the under-representation of frequently-used opaque phrases points to the need for a more systematic approach to their inclusion.

    Recycling the data: Building and using a learner business English writing corpus2018Inngår i: Call Your Data: Proceedings of the XIXth CALL Conference / [ed] Josef Colpaert, Ann Aerts & Frederik Cornillie, Antwerp, 2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the construction and use of a small corpus of business English writing by Swedish university students to form the basis of a "learning driven data" (Seidlhofer, 2002) approach to their studies in business writing. Course assignments were used to construct a small corpus which was analysed from a lexical perspective in relation to the Business Service List (BSL) (Browne & Culligan, 2016) and an online Business Letter Corpus (BLC) to identify errors and gaps in knowledge. The findings were then used to inform course content and form the basis for tasks using the learner corpus, which will be integrated into the course structure to provide opportunities for data-driven learning. This study contributes to the growing number of pedagogic applications of learner corpora, demonstrating an approach that could be adapted to a range of other learning contexts.

    The ELT Archive Textbook Corpus: How much has language teaching changed?2018Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This presentation describes and demonstrates some potential uses of a historical English Language Teaching (ELT) corpus, using a small pilot corpus of intermediate level ELT textbooks from the 1960s. There have been few systematic and objective historical accounts of language teaching methods and materials (Smith 2015: 84), and the history of ELT has typically been presented as a rather simplified ‘procession of methods’, with an emphasis on their difference than any similarities (Howatt and Smith 2014: 76). Here I will explore some ways in which a corpus-based approach can contribute to our knowledge in this area. The 1960s have been identified as a starting point for the corpus as a range of methodological influences were present in ELT in this decade. The books in the pilot have been selected to reflect this, including courses which situate themselves within structural, audiolingual and situational teaching paradigms. From the corpus, we can identify task-types, examine instructions and target language, and use this data to gain insights into the pedagogical approaches in use. The 1960s corpus is a pilot for a larger project that aims to investigate twentieth century English Language Teaching (ELT) materials diachronically. With the co-operation of the ELT Archive at Warwick University (see https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/al/research/collections/elt_archive/), we aim to digitize a range of representative ELT textbooks from several decades of the last century, and build a corpus through which language teaching methods and language taught can be explored and compared.

    My friend is always with me: The emotional connection between human and plants2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The vision of this project is to change peoples life style by improving their daily connection with plants. The goal of this project is to design a physical product that makes a strong everyday connection between human being and nature. A piece of nature is going to be carried in this product.

    The user study will be designed as an online questionnaire for different group of society and observation in the lab and in an ordinary room. Primary modles were made by acrylic and cartoon and tested by users in tow different stages. Participants were collected among different age, gender, with and without disabilities. Both plant lovers and non-plant lovers participated in this user study.
